New 2019 Kia ProCeed: shooting brake prices and specs announced

The Kia ProCeed trades a little practicality for a racy looks and spritely performance, with prices starting from just under £24k

Kia has announced pricing and specification information for its new ProCeed shooting brake. Due to go on sale later this year, prices start at £23,835 for the 138bhp 1.4-litre GT-Line model and climb to £28,185 for the range-topping 1.6-litre GT.

The ProCeed badge was reserved for the three-door hatchback in the model’s previous generation. Now, however, the ProCeed adopts shooting brake proportions and is wedged between regular five-door Ceed hatchback and the Ceed Sportswagon estate. It’ll be built alongside the duo at Kia’s Žilina production facility in Slovakia.

New Kia ProCeed GT review

Like the new Kia Ceed GT hatch, the ProCeed GT is powered by a 1.6-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol with 201bhp and 265Nm of torque. Unlike the GT hatch, however, this engine is only available with a DCT rather than a manual.

Despite the change in gearbox, performance figures are almost identical between the Ceed hatch and shooting brake GTs, with the ProCeed dispatching 0-62mph in 7.2 seconds and achieving a claimed top speed of 140mph; only three mph slower than the hatch. Economy figures are slightly improved, at 39.3mpg.

Other available engines include a 138bhp 1.4-litre four-cylinder petrol, priced from £23,835, and a 134bhp 1.6-litre four-cylinder diesel, priced from £24,685. Both engines are available with either a manual or automatic gearbox in either GT-Line or GT-Line S trim.

The new ProCeed has been developed exclusively for the European market. As such, it’s been configured to cope with the twisty European road network, featuring larger brakes, independant suspension, stiffer dampers and slightly softer anti-roll bars to keep the ProCeed’s wheels in contact with the road when cornering.

Inside, the ProCeed gets an eight-inch infotainment system with TomTom navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, heated leather sports seats, bluetooth phone connectivity, a flat-bottomed steering wheel and aluminium pedals. ProCeed GT-Line S models also receive an eight-speaker JBL sound system and wireless smartphone charger.

Features specific to GT-Line S models include a pair of heavily bolstered power-adjustable front sports seats, a set of 18-inch alloys with grey centre caps, LED headlights, an electric sun-roof, an eight-speaker JBL sound system and wireless smartphone charger. Prices start at £28,685.

The range-topping 201bhp GT model adds to the GT-Line S specification, including a gloss black “tiger nose” grille with red insert, 18-inch alloy wheels with red centre caps, red brake calipers, parking sensors and a revised rear bumper with twin exhausts and a diffuser. The cabin is also treated to red stitching on the door cards, steering wheel and seats and faux leather upholstery.

Where practicality is concerned, Kia says that the lower roofline has been offset with a slightly sunken bench, unlocking a bit more headroom. The rear bench is still a 40:20:20 split folding set-up enabling a totally flat cargo bay, while with all seats in place boot space sizes up at 594 litres, down from the 625 litres found in the Ceed Sportswagon.
